by Dubaiforum

Sporting icons Rafael Nadal and Cristiano Ronaldo have collaborated to open a retro-style fine-dining Italian restaurant in the UAE capital, Toto Abu Dhabi. The restaurant promises a culinary experience that transports diners back to Italy in the 1950s and ’60s, celebrating traditional flavors and craftsmanship.

Head chef Federico Bartoli, who is leading the kitchen at Toto Abu Dhabi, is focused on continuous improvement. Just like a tennis player or a footballer training for a big game, Bartoli aims to deliver better results week by week, dish by dish.

With indoor and terrace seating options, Toto Abu Dhabi offers a picturesque setting on the Mamsha Al Saadiyat beachfront promenade. The ambiance is elevated by the moonlit white sand beach and gentle waves, making it a perfect spot for al fresco dining. The decor is dominated by brown and beige tones, enhancing the retro Italian theme.

The menu at Toto Abu Dhabi features a variety of dishes inspired by traditional Italian cuisine with a modern touch. From clay pot casseroles to wood-fired oven meats and fish, there is something for every palate. The antipasti menu offers a selection of cold and hot options, including sauteed prawns and burrata from Puglia.

For mains, guests can choose from a range of pizzas, pasta, fish, and meat dishes. A highlight is the best-selling ravioli with spinach and ricotta filling, served with tomato and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese sauces. The classic Italian tiramisu is a standout dessert option, rounding off a meal of exceptional quality.

Chef Bartoli brings his passion for food and creativity to Toto Abu Dhabi, drawing inspiration from his traditional Italian roots and global culinary experiences. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, with prices starting at Dh80 for appetizers, Dh85 for mains, and Dh50 for desserts. Reservations can be made via phone or online.

Toto Abu Dhabi promises a dining experience that is sure to impress, with the potential for even greater things to come as Chef Bartoli puts his stamp on the menu. Whether you’re a fan of Nadal, Ronaldo, or simply fine Italian cuisine, a visit to Toto Abu Dhabi is a must for food enthusiasts in the UAE capital.
